William M. Moylan, Attorney-at-Law

Partner (1948 – 2017)

At a very young age, William Moylan dreamed of being a lawyer. Mr. Moylan was impressed and heavily influenced by his close family members who were in the legal profession. While attending the prestigious Notre Dame University in Indiana, Mr. Moylan realized that he was passionate about helping people and in resolving issues of a legal nature. This passion of wanting to help others drove him to attend the well-renowned John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois where he graduated at the top of his class. Subsequent to attending law school, his interest in learning never stopped. He attended several symposiums and seminars around the world pertaining to issues of aviation law. He was also invited to speak at several workshops in renowned schools. Mr. Moylan has dedicated the last 20 years of his legal career to representing victims and their families in aviation cases. He has appeared multiple times in the media and he has provided his legal opinion in a variety of tragic incidents around the world. He has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients despite the fact that his clients were not U.S. citizens or residents, with the defendants being persons or entities operating outside the USA, and where the accidents did not happen in the USA. Mr. Moylan served on different committees at different bar associations during his legal career.
